Capacity Licensing Information

This chapter provides capacity licensing information for Oracle Database Appliance. It contains a separate section for each of the following:

Oracle Database Appliance X4-2 Oracle Database Appliance X3-2 Oracle Database Appliance

Each section contains the following topics:

An overview of the system capacity and default licensing settings for bare metal deployments. A set of rules and restrictions to follow when you set CPU core counts for bare metal deployments. Step-by-step instructions to change CPU core counts for bare metal deployments An overview of capacity licensing on Oracle Database Appliance Virtualized Platform.
Note: Find details about managing capacity licensing for Oracle Database Appliance Virtualized Platform in the Resizing ODA_BASE section of Chapter 6 in the Oracle Database Appliance Getting Started Guide.

Oracle Database Appliance X4-2


Overview Oracle Database Appliance X4-2 comprises two servers and each server has 24 CPU cores. By default, Oracle Database Appliance is shipped with all cores enabled on both servers, that is:

24 CPU cores are enabled on each of the two servers You have a total of 48 enabled CPU cores

You can use the default CPU core count of 24 for each server, or you can change the CPU core count by following the procedure in "Changing the CPU Core Count on Oracle Database Appliance X4-2 Bare Metal Deployments" on page 1-2. For example, if you change the CPU core count to 16 for each server, then:

16 CPU cores are enabled on each of the two servers You have a total of 32 enabled CPU cores

Capacity Licensing Information 1-1

Oracle Database Appliance X4-2

Rules and Restrictions for Changing the CPU Core Count on Oracle Database Appliance X4-2 Bare Metal Deployments Review the following rules and restrictions before changing the CPU core count:

You can change the CPU core count to 4, 8, 12, 16, 20, or 24 for each server. If you change the CPU core count, then you can subsequently only increase the CPU core count. For example, if you change the CPU core count to 16, then you can subsequently change the CPU core count to 20 or 24. If you later change the CPU core count to 20, then you can subsequently change the CPU core count to 24.

If your desired CPU core count is 24 for each server, then use the default configuration. Do not follow the procedure in "Changing the CPU Core Count on Oracle Database Appliance X4-2 Bare Metal Deployments" on page 1-2 to set the CPU core count to 24. Using the default configuration will allow you to later change the CPU core count to a number less than 16, if desired.
Note:

If you mistakenly followed the procedure to set your CPU core count to 24, thereby preventing you from subsequently decreasing your CPU core count, and the error is caught immediately, then contact Oracle Support to remedy the situation.

Changing the CPU Core Count on Oracle Database Appliance X4-2 Bare Metal Deployments To change the CPU core count:
1.

Log in to the My Oracle Support at:


https://myoraclesupport.com

2. 3.

Click the Settings tab and select Assets from the submenu. Search for the serial number of the appliance in the asset list. If you cannot locate the serial number, then contact Oracle Support.

4. 5. 6.

Select the serial number of the appliance. Select Manage Key... from the available actions. In the Manage Cores Configuration Key dialog box, you can view the serial number of the appliance. If a key was previously generated, then you can view the current configuration.
a.

In the Cores Per Server drop-down list, select the desired number of enabled CPU cores for each server. The value you select will apply to both servers on the appliance. Initially, you can select 4, 8, 12, 16, 20, or 24. Subsequently, you can only select a number that is greater than the current number.

Click Generate Key to generate the key. Click Copy Key to Clipboard to copy the key to the clipboard.

Paste the key into an empty text file and save the file to a location on the Oracle Database Appliance. Log in to one of the servers on Oracle Database Appliance as root.

Note: The command in this step will reboot the server to complete the reconfiguration. Run the following command:
/opt/oracle/oak/bin/oakcli apply core_configuration_key key_file_location

Where key_file_location is the full path name of the text file that you created in Step 7. For example:
/opt/oracle/oak/bin/oakcli apply core_configuration_key /home/myfile.txt

After the system reboots, Oracle Database Appliance will be reconfigured and both servers will be running with the specified CPU core count. You must always assign cores to ODA_BASE in multiples of two, with a minimum of two cores. Capacity Licensing and Oracle Database Appliance X4-2 Virtualized Platform The Oracle Database Appliance X4-2 Virtualized Platform capacity license is based on all 24 cores in each server. You assign a subset of the cores to the ODA_BASE domain, where Oracle software, including cluster management and database, is installed. The remaining cores are available to deploy virtual machines. You can change the core assignments at any time without having to update your license information. The procedure to change ODA_BASE core count is covered in the Resizing ODA_BASE section of Chapter 6 in Oracle Database Appliance Getting Started Guide.

Oracle Database Appliance X3-2


Overview Oracle Database Appliance X3-2 comprises two servers and each server has 16 CPU cores. By default, Oracle Database Appliance is shipped with all cores enabled on both servers, that is:

16 CPU cores are enabled on each of the two servers You have a total of 32 enabled CPU cores

You can use the default CPU core count of 16 for each server, or you can change the CPU core count by following the procedure in "Changing the CPU Core Count on Oracle Database Appliance X3-2 Bare Metal Deployments" on page 1-4. For example, if you change the CPU core count to 12 for each server, then:

12 CPU cores are enabled on each of the two servers You have a total of 24 enabled CPU cores

Rules and Restrictions for Changing the CPU Core Count on Oracle Database Appliance X3-2 Bare Metal Deployments Review the following rules and restrictions before changing the CPU core count:

You can change the CPU core count to 4, 8, 12, or 16 for each server. If you change the CPU core count, then you can subsequently only increase the CPU core count.
